    Can you confirm what "family style" dining means? Do we still choose foods we want to eat or do they just bring out a variety of foods without us ordering?

    Hi, Katie!

    At Family Style meals, platters of pre-plated foods are brought to your table.  There is usually a nice variety to choose from.  Your server will explain what will be brought out to you.  So if you know that, for example, at Whispering Canyon that nobody will want salad, you can tell your server not to even bring it.  Family Style dining has unlimited refills, so you can reorder as much as you wish.  Usually we have our server bring everything so we can at least give it all a try - and usually we are quite happy and quite full after a Family Style meal.

    If you are looking at a specific restaurant that you want more information on, let me know and I can help you with the menu.  If there is one thing my family loves at WDW it is eating, so we've tried almost every restaurant and I will be happy to help you out.  Make sure to plan ahead with your Advance Dining Reservations !
